    Oh I'm sorry I used the wrong word.... "nominated" is the correct word.

    And right you are... I posted the same mistake in a different thread! Let me slink off silently now....

    Oh, yes, he nominated them. It's funny that you want to split hairs on that, but anything goes when they get on the Court.

    Once they previously decided that marriage was a civil right, it was all over. So here's a sample:

    "Excluding same-sex couples from marriage thus conflicts with a central premise of the right to marry." (p.15 of the majority decision)

    "Indeed, while the States are in general free to vary the benefits they confer on all married couples, they have throughout our history made marriage the basis for an expanding list of governmental rights, benefits, and responsibilities. These aspects of marital status include: taxation; inheritance and property rights; rules of intestate succession; spousal privilege in the law of evidence; hospital access; medical decision making authority; adoption rights; the rights and benefits of survivors; birth and death certificates; professional ethics rules; campaign finance restrictions; workers’ compensation benefits; health insurance; and child custody, support, and visitation rules."

    "There is no difference between same- and opposite-sex couples with respect to this principle." (both on p.16-17)

    "It follows that the Court also must hold—and it now does hold—that there is no lawful basis for a State to refuse to recognize a lawful same-sex marriage performed in another State on the ground of its same-sex character"
    ( on p.28.)
    "Freedom doesn't mean safe, it means free."

    "No, you'll be *a* judge of that, just like everyone else who reads it."

    In his dissent in Lawrence v Texas, the deep bigotry he revealed there was so painfully obvious (topper: his ironic remark about "taking sides in the culture war") -

    To wit:

    "One of the most revealing statements in today’s opinion is the Court’s grim warning that the criminalization of homosexual conduct is “an invitation to subject homosexual persons to discrimination both in the public and in the private spheres.” Ante, at 14.

    It is clear from this that the Court has taken sides in the culture war,
    departing from its role of assuring, as neutral observer, that the democratic rules of engagement are observed. "

    Now this:

    "Many Americans do not want persons who openly engage in homosexual conduct as partners in their business, as scoutmasters for their children, as teachers in their children’s schools, or as boarders in their home." https://www.law.cornell.edu/supct/html/02-102.ZD.html

    He' just fine and dandy criminalizing certain sexual behaviors between consenting adults behind closed doors -- and goes on to tell us how "many" folks just don't want those icky gays around them.

    Curiously, though, 15 years later, (in this most recent decision) -- he says the gay issue "is of no particular importance to me." Ha!

    Jig-pokery that, Tony.

    Yeah, well you quoted from the majority opinion. So what? How about some quotes from the dissent?

    What should I ask him? What's wrong with him for referencing the Constitution correctly? OMG! How dare he! That's not fair!
